27.04.09 Best Dressed

2009 BAFTA Television Awards – Best Dressed

Ravashing In Red/Best Dressed Award
Patsy Kensit gives Louise Redknapp and Michelle Ryan a masterclass on how to wear a red gown.

The mermaid Dolce & Gabbana gown, with a pleated train, and floral corsage detail at the waist, was so exquisite that Patsy was Best Dressed at this event for me.

Best International Award – despite being born in the UK
Although Mischa Barton brought a touch of Hollywood to this UK awards do yesterday, she wore one of our London based designers.

Her floor-length long-sleeved gown was from the Osman Yousefzada Fall 2009 collection.

I love the gold turtle-neckline, but it would have been nice had she wore her hair back so we could have got the full effect of the detail.

Best Maternity Award
If I didn’t already know Tess Daly was pregnant, I would never have guessed.

Her 3.1 Phillip Lim ruffle-front shift dress, does a very good job of disguising her baby bump.

The radiant mum-to-be wore her dress with a black clutch, gold bangle, and tribal inspired Jimmy Choo Serena strappy sandals.

Best Use Of Accessories Award
Miranda Raison dove grey dress is gorgeous, but what I love about this look the most is the pink shimmering belt she paired with the dress. Without it, I think this dress would have looked so plain.

Best Embellishments Award
Hannah Murray grey tights work better with her Collette Dinnigan Fall 2008 silver dress with a feather detail on the skirt.

You may remember that Fearne Cotton wore this same dress to the National Television Awards last year.

On Trend Award
Liz McClarnon doesn’t usually do elegant, but that is how she presented herself yesterday in the colour of the season: nude.

Her asymmetrical gown, with pretty flower embellishment was definitely the right choice for her.

Best Use Of Colour Award
Davina Mccall wore a cobalt blue draped gown. I love the detail on the front, and how she didn’t over accessorize her look.

I love that she opted for a lilac clutch, instead of a predictable black clutch.

Sexy Back Award
The lace trend maybe over, but that didn’t stop Lisa Maxwell wearing this lace backless gown, with a bow detail on the front.

Summertime Floral Award
The way our British summer time is going; glorious sunshine yesterday, rain today. Lucy Benjamin did well to give her floral Matthew Williamson silk lamé dress an airing.

Lord knows when she’ll get to wear it again.

High Fashion Award
Jamie Winstone gave us some high-fashion wearing black Chanel Pre-Fall 2009 dress, with jeweled brooches, and strappy metallic sandals. Hot pink lips complete the look.

You’re Never Too Old To Be Fabulous Award
The grand dames of British Television were not to be out done by their younger counterparts.

Barbara Windsor and June Brown aka Peggy Mitchell and Dot Cotton from Eastenders, looked sensational. Barbara wore a black gown, with a sheer yoke, that tastefully shows off her cleavage.

For me June looks outstanding. First off, I LOVE her hair like this. Secondly her cream skirt suit with embellished jacket is sublime.

In Mischa Barton’s Closet – Matthew Williamson For H&M


Look what Mischa Barton got from the Matthew Williamson for H&M collection.

Mischa attended the Matthew Williamson Pre-Launch Event last night, and it looks like she picked one of the pieces which was on many girls wish lists, the blue 3/4 length sleeved mini dress, with a stand-out peacock print.

Both Katy Perry and Nicky Hilton wore this same dress 2 weeks ago, whilst Mischa was spotted in this dress earlier today, whilst out and about in London.


She wore her dress with some pretty funky Alexander McQueen Neon flash shoe boots, a black fringe bag, and turquoise rimmed sunglasses.

It’s quite cute how she has accessories her dress with two colours from the peacock print, don’t you think?

You can purchase her shoe boots with the pink soles, from the Net-A-Porter US site for $970, or the international site for £445/€530.

Matthew Williamson For H&M Pre Launch Event


If you were following me on twitter, you would have known that I attended the Matthew Williamson for H&M Pre-Launch event this evening.

The event started at 1830, but I got there around 1845, and was so crestfallen when I saw that the queue was going around the block. This meant I could kiss those pieces from my wish list goodbye.

The best thing about standing in the queue was seeing Matthew Williamson, who was happy to smile for the picture above, as he walked the length of the queue to see how many fashion hungry women were keen to get their hands on his collection.


Although I didn’t get the studded belt that I wanted, nor the Ginnifer Goodwin’s sequined dress, I did get the 5 pieces above.

My favourite piece was the fuchsia pink peacock embellished cardigan, which I originally wanted in blue, but I just adore it in pink.

For those of you who wanted to know prices:
£29.99/€39.90 for the cowl neck peacock top,
£49.99/€79.90 for the cardigan,
£34.99/€49.90 for the sleeveless embroidered top,
£39.99/€59.90 for the jacquard skirt and;
£14.99/€22.90 for the peacock pendent.


One of Matthew Williamson’s darlings, Sienna Miller was there.

She was not wearing the H&M line, but a multi-coloured dress from his Fall 2009 collection, which she looked amazing in.

Love the dress, and how fresh she looks, but I’m not crazy about the shoes at all.


If Sienna is Queen darling, then Mischa Barton is Princess darling.

She arrived wearing the same navy blue jacquard Matthew Williamson for H&M skirt I had purchased, with a cropped white tee, and Matthew Williamson for H&M leather waistcoat.

I love how the whole look is pulled together with those amazing Alexander McQueen studded platform peep-toe booties.

I still want that sequined dress, so I’m keeping my fingers crossed that it will be there tomorrow.


UPDATE: I went back early this morning and got the sequined dress.

I ? it. It looks so cute in my wardrobe, and I can’t wait to wear it.

In Mischa Barton’s Closet – Matthew Williamson Sequin Dress


Mischa Barton was one of the many stars that attended Matthew Williamson boutique opening party in New York during Fashion Week.

It wasn’t a surprise to see the sometime actress, sometime model, sometime designer, at this event, as she has long been faithful to Matthew Williamson, and often seen in his clothes.

For his special night she opted for a Mosaic sequined dress.

This bedazzling mosaic sequin sheath dress will make you a modern day flapper girl, if you pair it with a metallic t-bar heels, and long beads. You can buy it from Net-A-Porter’s international site £1,463/€1,875.

Who Wore Alberta Ferretti Better? Shenae Grimes or Mischa Barton


Shenae Grimes arrived at the InStyle/Warner Bros. Golden Globes after party, wearing a taupe, jewel embellished, fringed Alberta Ferretti Spring 2009 dress.

The 90210 actress sported a half-up half-down hair do, and completed her look with matching strappy heels.

Mischa Barton wore the same fringed dress, when she attended The P&G Beauty and Grooming Awards, with a two-tone lace up booties, and metallic silver Sergio Rossi clutch for an added touch of glam.

Mischa wins for me, as I love her accessories, and I really don’t favour Shenae’s hair do.
